Today, April 1st, is the first day of our Easter vacation. We will be on vacation through the 9th of April.
We departed our home in Warren PA at 6:00 am en route Chincoteague VA. Bob programmed the GPS to avoid highways.
We planned to bring our bicycles with us to Chincoteague but decided not to do so, given the weather forecast for the day. Bob commented a couple times, while driving, that he is happy that we aren’t transporting the bicycles, given today’s snow and rainy conditions.
Mother Nature is playing a trick on us today, on April Fool’s Day. We encountered light snow flurries, as we left Warren, and heavier snow flurries past Ridgway. The ground and house roofs past Ridgway showed a dusting of snow.
We stopped for breakfast in Clearfield at Dutch Pantry, our favorite breakfast stop when traveling East.
We stopped at Fisherman’s Park at Conowingo Dam, where we saw one eagle, a few great blue herons, and many vultures.
From Fisherman’s Park we drove over the Conowingo Dam. It was a short distance to our hotel.
We checked into the Best Western Chesapeake Bay North Inn in North East, MD around 2:00 pm. We stayed here in November last year, while en route Chincoteague. The hotel is our home for the night. We will drive from here to Chincoteague, VA tomorrow.
Tonight’s dinner was take out at Hunan Wok, located across the road from our hotel. Bob ordered Shrimp Lo Mein; I ordered Sweet n Sour Chicken. Both meals were served with Roast Pork Fried Rice and Egg Roll. Meals were reasonably priced and tasted good. We ordered by phone, and Bob drove across the road to pick up our take-out dinners. We ate in the comfort of our hotel room.
We watched a couple episodes of Law &Order: Special Victims Unit on Hulu. We have a LONG way to go until we catch up to the current season, Season 21, as we are currently watching episodes from Season 8.
I went to bed, after watching Hulu. Bob stayed up for a while working on the GoPro video of the drive here.
